of another march on washington or at least a commemoration of it. >> well, he might need to deliver some of the same speech that never got heard. dr. king's introduction was in a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check. when the architects of the republic wrote magnificent words of the constitution and declaration of independence, they were signing a promissory note to every american which every prey american would fall heir. and if you look at the constitution as a promissory note for the fulfillment of the unaable rights of all human beings, everything you talk about is the human race. and i think this was never a black march. this was the march and the dream was a dream that made a southern movement a national movement and an international human rights movement all at once. it probably changed from civil rights to human rights. and it included all of the other factions. women were not mentioned in the constitution. gay and lesbian folk were not mentioned in the constitution. all of the immigrant issue was -- well, everybody was an immigrant when the constitution was w
in washington to honor dr. king's crusade. but sadly, sadly, most of the speeches were heavy on grievance, light on problem-involving. we heard a small but a criticism directed at irresponsible behavior that leads to chaos and ruin but not much. however, we did hear a lot about racial profiling. and voter identification requirements. we heard questionable comparisons of trayvon martin to immitt til. we heard the continuing mantra of more government money to fix social problems that can only be fixed in the home. intelligent americans know it is the collapse of the traditional family that is wreaking havoc in the african-american community. other issues while some somewhat important are essentially a side show. if dr. king were alive today he would be broken hearted what has happened to the traditional family and not only among blacks, in our competitive society the ill educated of all colors are likely to fail. good education is a partnership between parents and teacher fns if they are derelict read and study at home teachers cannot wave a magic wand. if a child has no guidance in the house. he

in here. the western powers and london and paris and in washington, the leaders have been mulling over a military option. we have spoke time and again -- >> the situation with this chemical weapons attack has forced the obama administration to acknowledge, but only the severity of the situation, what also it can only sort of be evasive about what has been meant by crossing this red line. i think that as london and paris publicly ratcheted up the rhetoric about what needs to be done in response, president obama -- there has been a lot of pressure for a variety of reasons for making good on the chemical weapons convention and making clear this kind of attack is inconceivable and unacceptable to the international community. the president understands that his credibility on this issue is at stake and in ways that he really has to balance this against the strong public opinion against any significant intervention. >> descents within the u.s. -- do you sense within the u.s. there is a lot of mounting pressure to take a tough line? >> john mccain is one of the most adamant and eloquent partis

as the international community. here are the lines on the screen. here is the front page of "the washington post" this morning. obama weighing limiting strike on syria. they say the president is wearing a strike syria that would be a limited scope and duration, designed to serve as punishment for serious use of chemical weapons and as a deterrent while keeping the u.s. out of deeper involvement in that country possible war. this according to senior administration officials. the timing of such an attack which would probably last no more than two days and involve -- lawrence cruise missiles and involve see launch cruise is dependent on three factors. completion of an intelligence report assessing syrian government culpability in last week's chemical attack, ongoing consultation with allies in congress, and a determination of the justification under international law. scott wilson joins us by phone now. he is white house bureau chief for the washington post. good morning. insight can you put forth this morning guest: on the administration's thinking it is notbut syria only a matter of if like you a

.s.? obama could arm the rebels. washington has already promised military aid for syrian rebels, but fears that weapons could fall into the wrong hands have held back deliveries. obama could issue a presidential order for those weapons transfers to go through. president obama could enforce a no-fly zone over syria. . and opposition forces can do little to stop government airstrikes. and nato and forced -- enforced no-fly zone helped make the fight their success. it would be difficult and expensive. at the u.s. could order airstrikes against regime targets. the u.s. action with nato in cozumel could serve as a blueprint or efforts in syria. widespread violence forced thousands to flee the country. russian road test made it alone. ships off the coast fired cruise missiles into serbian territory. the u.s. navy could do the same in syria. for u.s. warships are already anchored off the syrian coast. but the danger of civilian casualties is high. without broad support by the international community, military action could spark a wider regional conflict. syria is surrounded by israel, lebanon, ir
tsunami takes place in washington. what are you looking for? let me tell you. we are getting real momentum. there is a national website, don' it has 578,000 signatures on it. we have seen 10 or 20,000 signatures. i keel confident with the hanity viewers and the loyal passion that they have for freedom that at the end of this show that we can break 6,000. to me this is a deal killer. the republicans don't stand, i appreciate the symbolic votes but this is the real deal this time. >> if you don't stand for it. i don't see a difference between the republicans and the democrats. >> sadly, sean, there is one difference. right now the people fighting the hardest against defunding obamacare are republicans. the republicans are all shooting at those who are trying to work with the grass roots to stop this disaster of a bill that is killing jobs and driving up insurance rates and hurting the american people. how do we win? first we get 41 republicans in the senate to stand together and the only way to do that is to get millions of americans to go online and hold our officials accountabl
, if not the greatest foreign policy mistake ever. so now here we are. the drum beat in washington today says that there is going to be an american or an american and allied military hit of some kind against syria. what will that do? what choices does president obama have in terms of how to respond if he does want to respond militarily or otherwise? does congress get a say in the matter, and what happens if we are wrong about this? our government's track record on being wrong about chemical weapons is long. it spans multiple administrations for multiple reasons. and if the use of chemical weapons really is going to be a real red line in the world that demands a response when it happens, why is the world waiting for our government to make up our government's own mind about whether this happened instead of waiting for the u.n. weapons inspectors to say definitively one way or the other? the u.n. weapons inspectors are in syria right now. why is the world waiting on the u.s. government, especially with our track record on this issue, instead of waiting on the experts who are right now looking in
. and there is a process by which we need to follow. it was framed in our constitutional. george washington made it clear. >> sir, while we understand that there is, you know, the responsibility right now is coming from the president because of the words that were used by the secretary of state john kerry yesterday saying it really is undeniable, but do you need stronger confirmation that not only are there deaths associated with chemical weapons but they are directly linked with bashar al assad and his government? >> thomas, one of the main purpose of what i'm asking here and i think is clearly required under our constitution is to have the time to see that evidence, to walk through it and deliberate it on the house floor. right now, the president, i think, kind of thrown us a bone, if you will. he is meeting or talking to individual members. this is helpful but no substitute for engaging the institution itself. the discussions are taking place in private right now they need to take place on the house floor and senate floor. the president really, i think, looks for his moral foundation in this from the
>>> bread line for the right. let's play "hardball." good evening. i'm kris matthews in washington. he has done it to damascus, now he is doing it here. president obama today drew a red line here at home. any republican who tries to bring this country into the default, fails to pay interest on the national debt is the enemy. there will be no deals, the president says, no talks, no schmoozes, no bedtime stories, no nothing. you are cut off. america will pay its debts. it will not default. it will not destroy its credit in the world. and you can threaten. you can scream and yell, but the united states government will not fail in the bankruptcy because of this economic terrorism you on the right purport to be a political philosophy. well, the secretary of the treasury said it less dramatically this morning, but said it just as clearly. any attempt by the right wing to threaten this country with national default will be met with the strongest response, no deals. bashar al assad in damascus, but against those in this country who would jeopardize the country's financial strength. joining
